Little Bites: Liquor Stores Galore & Experience Farm Life 

Cheers! More Liquor Stores Are Coming

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission is accepting applications for retail liquor locations for Central and Northeast Oregon from June 1 through July 31. The statewide initiative includes more than the traditional stand-alone stores; it adds selling distilled spirits within an existing retail space, boutique outlets, grocery and convenience stores. Since the OLCC started the process, Executive Director Steve Marks said, "We have approved 20 new stores over the past year, making this the largest expansion since prohibition. We are now on track to approve another 43 stores over the next two years."

If you've dreamt of opening your own liquor store or adding liquor to your existing business, applications to apply are on the OLCC website,

Experience Farm and Ranch Life in Central Oregon

Crooked River Open Pastures (C.R.O.P) offers free farm tours all summer. Each hosting farm has a small market with different vendors and family friendly activities. Events are on select Saturdays from 10am to 2pm throughout Crook County.

The next event is on June 10 with Wine Down Ranch and Angels Rest Ranch. You can experience "timber to table" by watching and learning from a professional forester. And you won't want to miss the cows, pigs and chickens hanging out on the range.

C.R.O.P events are organized by the High Desert Food and Farm Alliance and a dedicated group of farmers and community members in Crook County. Find a full list of farm and ranch events online at
